St. Louis hockey fans aren’t feeling blue after the way the Blues have started off this year’s season.

 

Third periods have always gone downhill for the blues, but the 2017-18 seasons has started off strong with the Blues going 4-0 for the second time in the team’s history.

 

They beat the defending Stanley Cup champions, the Pittsburgh Penguins, but lost to the Florida Panthers in a later game.

 

If the team would’ve won their next game, then they would’ve started out the season 5-0, which would’ve been the first time in Blues’ history that they started the season off that strong.

 

Unfortunately, the Blues lost their next two games, but still show a promising season ahead of them.

 

“I think that people who aren’t fans would want to go (to games) more because it’s a lot more fun to watch a good team than a (worse) team,” Berkbigler said.

 

After watching the Blues play well in their first four games, EHS Senior Morgan Mollett is excited for the rest of the hockey season. The Blues doing this well makes fans like her (and even non-fans) more eager to head out to Scottrade Center.

 

“I might be more likely to attend (a game),” Mollett said. “I love when teams that I like do great and win.”

 

According to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, the Blues preserved a 3-2 win over the Rangers and were outshot 15-0 in the third period, marking only the fourth time in Blues’ history they have been held without an attempt in a period.

 

The St. Louis Blues also have the third longest NHL postseason appearance streak of 25 seasons. As impressive as this is, the ultimate goal is to win the Stanley Cup. The Blues are the oldest NHL team to never have won it.

 

“I think the Blues offense looks unstoppable this season, so if they can keep it up they have a solid shot at a deep run in the playoffs,” EHS Senior Grant Berkbigler said.
